Question by Happykid: Did you know that these religions all include the Golden Rule?
Hinduism:”One should not behave towards others in a way which is disagreeable to oneself. This is the essence of morality…”- Mahabharata, Anusasana Parva, 18:113:8
Sikhism:”As you see yourself, see others as well; only then will you become a partner in heaven.” Bhagat Kabir GGS 480
Buddhism:”I will act towards others exactly as I would act towards myself.”-The Siglo-Vada Sutta, about 500 BCE
Judaism: “Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself…” Leviticus 19:18
Christianity: “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 7:12
Islam: “None of you is truly a believer until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself.”- 40 Hadith
Confucianism: “What you do not wish upon yourself, extend not to others.” – Analects of Confucius, Chapter 15, Vs 23
Bahá’í: “Wish not for others what you wish not for yourselves”
The last siting is Baha’u’llah Aqdas 148.73
My point is it seems that religion is not what brings this golden rule forth, but something common in all people from all backgrounds.
